40 Years On The Air

Sunday, August 15th, 2021

After re-discovering my old diaries I recalled all sorts of moments…

15th August 1981 my radio career began when I stepped into the studio for my first training session. Now as I write this on 15th August 2021 I am still madly in love with the medium, the music and the community of listeners. Thanks to all from behind the mic!!

I Miss Flying 747 Tokyo-Sydney

Saturday, January 2nd, 2021

Have a look at my video on YouTube with no snazzy camera work, editing or music – just window seat views, the roar of the engines and flying for fun on my favourite jet the 747.

A few HND QF26 & SYD QF25 overnight flights, including a couple of re-scheduled daytime flights towards the end of the video.

MBE Investiture

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

Just had my day at Buckingham Palace!! Investiture on Friday 16 June 2017 to receive an MBE for services to British music in Japan. Prince Charles presented me with my medal and he was an absolute delight, we had a very friendly chat and a bit of a laugh. It was the most special day and I have to say the spirit of the occasion was a lot of fun with all of the incredible people I met and the welcoming Palace staff. What a lucky man I am. A couple of snaps here, professional photos are on the way.
I shall be writing a full recollection of the day here on my website soon plus reports on the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan website and on LHR – London Hit Radio broadcast across Japan on InterFM 89.7 and Love FM.
